…are accused of taking part in 5 Pr. George’s revenge killings
Alleged members of the violent Mara Salvatrucha street gang have been indicted in federal court, accused of slayings, assaults and robberies in the Maryland suburbs.
The indictment, which was unsealed this week in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, describes attacks and killings motivated by gang rivalry or retribution against people thought to be cooperating with authorities. The gang operated in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties and allegedly got money from member dues and extortion of high school students as well as by running brothels.
The nine defendants face a variety of charges, including racketeering, extortion and witness tampering in connection with crimes that occurred over more than five years.
According to the indictment, the gang — also known as MS-13 — is linked to five Prince George’s killings.
On Jan. 10, 2011, federal authorities say, members of the gang armed with a machete and other knives killed Juan Moreno Aguilar, 25, who they thought was in a rival gang, in a former grocery store parking lot on University Boulevard. According to the indictment, Aguilar was killed after a gang leader in El Salvador, where the group has its roots, ordered that rival gang members be killed in revenge for the deaths of two MS-13 members. >>> Read more Washington Post
As We have shared with you previously, we are not one who are keen on the phrase “Emergency Preparedness.” we believe in preparedness, pure and simple, and thus being self-reliant. Whether it be today or in the future as the result of some social breakdown, we feel that it’s important to understand what organized evil exists out there so that you can make an educated decision as to how you will defend yourself. We are speaking specifically of the highly organized and militant gangs here in the United States especially in Prince George’s County Public schools (PGCPS).
Keep in mind that whether it’s today or tomorrow, dealing with gangs is something we have to do whether we like it or not. For some they are simply a prophetic fulfillment of the “latter days.” For others they are a force that’s to be reckoned with by “someone else.” And to others they are simply something we see portrayed on television. Unfortunately though, the presence of gangs and their unthinkable violence is very real. And yes, they’ve even infiltrated a city near you and some of our schools here in Prince George’s County. One of the very worst of these modern replications of organized crime groups is MS-13. For quite sometimes, MS-13 gang members have been spotted at Parkdale High School, Northwestern High school, High Point High schools here in Prince George’s County. It’s high time the administration of Mr. Rushern Baker engaged the community to find a proper solution to this problem rather than burying the head in the sand like an Ostrich. Let the reported prosecution reported above be the beginning of proper eradication of this problem. Children who need help should be identified and rehabilitated.
In fact, the FBI defines them as the most organized crime entity in the U.S. They are feared not solely because of their horrific violent acts, but due to their organization. They specifically target middle and high schools for recruitment’s. They have no compunction towards committing violent acts upon their fellow citizens, as they fear no repercussions. Their greatest criminal focuses are on human and drug trafficking, and contract killing combined with unspeakable violence. A crime will never be committed by one of these members without it being accompanied by a beating, a rape, murder, dismemberment, or all of the above. They also have known ties and alliances to Al-Queda.
MS-13 is otherwise known as Mara Salvatrucha. Visual evidence of their presence in your area will be manifested by graffiti in your area that says “MS,” “Mara,” or “MS-13.”
Their violent organized traits stem from the fact that the majority of their founders are well trained in guerilla warfare in El Salvador. As such they possess a level of methodical training and skill set that rivals any other gang. Their initiation requirements are bloodcurdling. After enduring a slow 13 count beating—minimum—the inductee must then commit a violent act by either a beating, a rape, or a murder prior to being accepted. If the inductee fails in their efforts within 13 hours, then they are murdered in order that the MS-13 does not get marginalized by “incompetents.” (If you are a female inductee, the right of passage would include an obligatory gang rape). The more violent they are, the more elevated they are among their “military” crime group. One MS-13 member claimed during questioning by the FBI, “The crazier you are known to be, the more respect the gang gives you.” On November 26, 2008, Jonathan Retana was convicted of the murder of Miguel Angel Deras, which the authorities linked to an MS-13 initiation.
Bottom line, So why should YOU be concerned about them? Because they are yet one more aspect of a realistic potential situation for which you need to be prepared. Do not underestimate their violence as reported by Washington Post. You will not be able to reason with them. You will not be able to give them what they want and have them simply go away. Horrific violence is at their very core. You will need to be mindful of them and to defend yourself appropriately. You can be assured that in spite of their organization “skills” they will not be prepared for any type of an emergency scenario, thus they will use their gang to prey upon the preparedness efforts of others. As such, you must indeed be prepared to defend your home, family, and supplies against these modern-day pirates.
It stinks of people not caring, burying their heads in the sand or, worse still, already giving up hope for not confronting these gang which is making our schools unsafe in many cases. This does not have to be the case, working closely with the law enforcement community and community leaders in Prince George’s County and elsewhere can make a significant difference. It’s high time we tackled these issues heads on.
Burying the head in the sand like an Ostrich is not helping with matters in Prince George’s County.
